Another Day in the Life of the Girl

You know what's kinda embarrassing? Walking through the supermarket with a huge mother load of toilet paper-the twelve pack kind,
and nothing else. Sometimes I throw in a pack of gum, because you know, that always seems to help.

But then really it just looks like "yeah I go the bathroom a lot and I have bad breath."

You too?

As far as I'm concern, there's absolutely no reason to not stock up on toilet paper. It's not like they'll go bad after some expiration date.

Too funny. I usually buy it in bulk at Costco and the giant bag seems to be not so obvious with all of my other things. The one thing that I can't bear to buy there though is the BIG box of feminine products. I know it is a natural part of life but that just screams "Neon sign" to me.

I don't think I have ever been embarrassed by anything in my cart which leads me to question just how big a "motherload" of toilet paper would be... I'm trying to imagine how much toilet paper it would take to either embarrass me or make me stop to stare at someone...

Just add in some under arm deodarant, air freshener, um, let's see what else, oh yeah, an ear wax removal kit and you're all set - lol!

Couldn't resist that one my dear.

I do know what you mean about that however. I once tried asking my hubby to pick up some um, you know, those thingys we need one week out of every month and he was not cooperating... (smile)

Jules and Susan-- Yeah, I thought about *those things* too! LOL!! That's when I aim for a checker that is of the female kind...

David- Oh, that was good!! Gave me a chuckle. Really need to get you and my dad in the same room and then I will go cross eyed with all the eyeball rolling!!! EHeh Heh Heh!

Funny observation. I never thought to be embarrassed by something like that.. until now.

And David's comment cracked me up. He's on a roll...

It is quite interesting to have a nosey into someone elses life and a shopping trolley is one of the best places to start. Toilet paper and gum might, as you say, give too much away!

I'm with you.

I mean, I'm an adult and I'm not twelve anymore, so why should I care?

Still, there's something about a gigantic toilet paper package(?) that screams to the world: "I poop!"

And sometimes, when I just need paper towels, I'll look at people and think of saying, "I'm cool. It's only paper towels. What do you think I am? One of those pooping people?"

Really, if it bothers you that much, I could just do the TP shopping from now on...
